That Didn't Take Long: Frerichs Campaign Dismantles Shady Campaign Email Collection Tool

It wasn't but just a few hours ago that the Truth Team shined a spotlight on a shady - and non-CAN SPAM compliant - voter collection tool that the Mike Frerichs for Illinois Treasurer was using to lure voters into his web.

You can check out the full post here on the Truth Team.

If you check out the /MikeforIllinois Facebook page now, you'll notice that... *poof* it is gone!

Here's a screen shot of where the tool was living on the sidebar of Mike's Wall.

And for those of you who don't remember the deal, here goes:  We were tipped late last night from someone who is close to Team Frerichs that a consultant named Nancy Kohn who was dealing with the Frerichs for Treasurer campaign was no longer involved with them.  And...that when you were agreeing to get emails from Mike, you were in fact, not. were agreeing to get emails from Nancy Kohn.  Weird, right? less than two hours after we posted the item, the Frerichs campaign suddenly takes the whole thing down.

Now we're starting to understand why we're getting all these pageviews/sessions from Champaign and Urbana...

Glad you guys at Frerichs HQ are keeping up with us here at the Truth Team!
